My first go at this :D


One night, while quietly fishing in the sewers of Undercity, something happened IRL that made me believe in ghosts for 30 seconds. But then I saw it next to me, and I felt like a complete twat for telling her about that gastronomically horrible incident.

What did she do?

PS: Don't fret, Kobe. Who needs contracts with nauseating gianduja derivatives anyway?

Google if you must ;)

I'm a noob at this, so my apologies for not including the [Noobdogg] before the title.

Waiting on the first response with bated breath...

do we need to know what the Undercity is? an online game? or ordinary game?

is she human? adult? in the room with you? or in the same building at least?

did she do something in response to what you told her? does she believe in ghosts? are her emotions relevant?

Does your use of the word "astronomical" have any significance?
Is Kobe referring to the Basketball player?
The "gianduja" that you mention, is it the hazelnut chocolate?
Were you fishing for an aquatic animal? An object? Many objects?

so did Kobe the basketball player have a contract with some people who make chocolate? and he lost it? and this is relevant to your cousin? was she pleased he had lost it? or pleased for something to do with the chocolate? or maybe is it relevant who Kobe may have a contract with now?

@Damia

so did Kobe the basketball player have a contract with some people who make chocolate? Yes, not exactly chocolate, read aboveand he lost it? Yes and this is relevant to your cousin? No, the whole PS thing is only a hint for you to identify the brand was she pleased he had lost it? IRR or pleased for something to do with the chocolate? Please rephrase or maybe is it relevant who Kobe may have a contract with now? IRR

regarding the p.s.--ok, hope it's fine to keep googling!--does it have to do with nutella? possibly the fact that they didn't contact Kobe to do an ad, but he wanted to do ads for nutella because it was his favorite brand? i guess his face will be on the jars of nutella soon, if not right now? (btw, my husband loves nutella!)

does the p.s. have to do with your first statement? long shot guess--did you see an ad for nutella on the television while you were playing a game on the computer? if so, was kobe in the ad? on the jar in the ad? and when you were telling your first cousin about it, you noticed that she had a jar of nutella with kobe on it?

welcome to the forum!

Thanks Booklover! Can't believe I've been missing out on the lateral fun all this time!

regarding the p.s.--ok, hope it's fine to keep googling!Sure--does it have to do with nutella? YES! Well done! possibly the fact that they didn't contact Kobe to do an ad, but he wanted to do ads for nutella because it was his favorite brand? IRR, all that matters is that you've found the brand... now what's that got to do with what she did? i guess his face will be on the jars of nutella soon, if not right now? I think he lost the contract, but IRR anyway (btw, my husband loves nutella!) Each to his own...ugh (That was a hint ;-) )

does the p.s. have to do with your first statement? No, its an independent hint which you successfully used to identify the brand that's relevant --> Nutella long shot guess--did you see an ad for nutella on the television while you were playing a game on the computer? Ok i'll help you out here, the fact that i was playing on the computer is only relevant so far as that it was what I was doing when she did what she did, nothing more nothing less if so, was kobe in the ad? N\A on the jar in the ad? N\A and when you were telling your first cousin about it, you noticed that she had a jar of nutella with kobe on it? N\A, but thanks for finally coming to what I told my cousin....

do you like nutella? does your cousin? did she eat some? did she ask you if you wanted some? did she put some somewhere? did you tell her you hate it? did she try to make you eat it? did she try to prove it was nice?

I notice that there is a white letter making "astronomically" "gastronomically"-is this to do with you not liking nutella? Did you regret telling her you didn't like it? About a time you ate it by accident? Are you allergic to it? Is the thing you saw next to you nutella? Did she piut it there? Deliberately to annoy you because you had told her you didn't like it?

Yes, because of what she did About a time you ate it by accident? Not by accident Are you allergic to it? Not physiologically, No Is the thing you saw next to you nutella? A bottle of Nutella, Yes Did she piut it there? Yes Deliberately to annoy you because you had told her you didn't like it? Excellent! Yes!

Time for a....

------------------SPOILER------------------

I was playing World of Warcraft late one night, when I noticed the door creaking open... It was dark, and I bleakly said, "who's there??" no reply... i felt movement near me but couldn't see a thing. A moment later I saw the door close. To put it lightly, my heart was in my mouth... then i looked next to where i was sitting and saw a bottle of Nutella. It all made sense....

When I was a kid, I scooped up a whole bottle of rancid Nutella (ugh) and had a bad case of food poisoning. No wonder I acquired a bad distaste for it ;-) . I told my little cousin sister abt it, and mischievous and conniving as she is, she plotted to make me pay for telling her about this weakness. hehe.

Hope you enjoyed this little puzzle. Gratz to Enjay for working it out, and thanks to Damia and Booklover for unravelling a lot.
